NEWS, SPORTS, COMMENTARY, POLITICS for Gloucester City and the Surrounding Areas of South Jersey and Philadelphia

Walters/Schmidt v City of Gloucester City Hearing Wednesday in Camden


Mime-attachment Bill Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 
eleven (11) things they did not and will not learn in school. 

He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings 
created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and 
how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1
 Life is not fair - get used to it! 

Rule 2
 The world doesn't care about your self-esteem. 
The world will expect you to accomplish something 
BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3
 You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. 
You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4
 If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss 

Rule 5
 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. 
Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: 
They called it opportunity.

Rule 6
 If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, 
so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7
 Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring 
as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, 
cleaning your clothes and listening to you 
talk about how cool you thought you were 

So before you save the rain forest 
from the parasites of your parent's generation, 
try delousing the closet in your own room..

Rule 8
 Your school may have done away with winners and losers, 
but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades 
and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. 
*This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9
 Life is not divided into semesters. 
You don't get summers off and very few employers 
are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. 
*Do that on your own time.

Rule 10
 Television is NOT real life. 
In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11
 : Be nice to nerds. 
Chances are you'll end up working for one..

If you can read this in English... Thank a Soldier! 
And for life and everything else you have... Thank God!!
